Being the Chief Operation Officer of a company is not easy, it does not mean that you have more power, but more responsibility.

Also known as Director of Operations, Operations Director, or Chief Operations Officer.
A multi-tasker and with parents who calls to work at an early age at 12, Grace Bondad Nicolas embraces being the COO and the Founder of AG Builders and Developers, Tag Media and Public Relations and AAA Cosmetics and Trading Company. Thanks for the foundation and unconditional training she receives from her business-minded parents.
“Waking up each day at 4am is ordinary for me. My late father, Josefino Velasco Bondad of Calauan, Laguna was making sure to serve the customers earlier than the usual business hours because he doesn’t want them to wait especially the carpenters who likes to work early also to finish their construction work. It’s so different in the province and I am thankful and forever be grateful for the love and support from my parents. My mom keeps on telling me that Land bank Philippines even approached my father to be an Entrepreneur of the year during his heyday but he declined, that’s a proof how industrious and good he was on what he does. I’m forever grateful.”-Grace Bondad Nicolas
Right now, Nicolas is the one supervising the operation and making sure that deliveries are taking places, scripts and articles are properly disseminated or the construction projects are on track and on schedule.
What’s making her busier? She’s currently the Vice President of American Association of the Philippines, President of Kiwanis Club of Makati and Vice President of Makati Tourism Foundation Inc.
According to Nicolas, this global health crisis makes her busier. With all of the organizations she’s with, she’s working hard and perform well and at the same time she’s extending help to indigent communities not to mention her involvement in distribution of products under AAA Cosmetics and Trading Company with four brands; Graceful Skin Essentials, Immune CEE, GlamHigh Cosmetics and GlutaGlow Slimming Drinks.
“This pandemic is the launching pad. If you can make it in this global health crisis, you’ll be fantastically fine after.”, Nicolas added
